Note: *** Course dates changed

New dates: 18th, 19th, 20th November. It's now a three-day course (it
was too much for two days to begin with, but i had wanted it to fit in
with a three-day course Mulberry Technologies had planned to run).

Location: Rockville, MD

If you're using XSLT 2, you need to know about XSLT 3. Find out why on
this course. Learn the major new features - streaming, fn:transform,
new instructions, new functions, new data structures, new types.

fn:transform() changes what you can do with XSLT; streaming changes the
size of documents you can process and the speed and efficiency of the
process. JSON and HTML 5 support, along with zip archive support, puts
you ahead of the ebook curve. And there's even a way to make generating
CSS easier. Like, wow.

Higher-order functions simplify a lot of tasks - learn about these, and
learn when not to use them, too. Stylesheets, packages, modes - XSLT
has grown up.

You can write transformations that are easier to read and maintain,
that run faster, that do more.

This is a three-day course aimed primarily at people who have already
met and are using XSLT; it will help you considerably if you are using
XSLT 2 already. If you are not sure, contact me :)
